Micromax Dual 5 was company's first dual rear camera having two 13-megapixel sensors.
Micromax seems to launch a new smartphone in its Evok series which is named as Evok Dual Note. The company has shared a teaser video of its upcoming smartphone on its social media handle including Facebook and Twitter.
The 11-second video shows a pixelated image which later turns into a clear image of a parachute in the sky. The company's tweet says "Do you measure your moments in pixels? #EvokDualNote, coming soon. Stay tuned!". This hints at a camera-oriented phone and the company might launch a new variant of its recently launched Evok Note. Also, the Dual word in the name suggests that the device might feature dual camera setup as well. To recall, Micromax launched Evok Note smartphone in India in April this year.
The teaser, however, does not share either the specifications details or the launch date, but Micromax Evok Dual Note is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
Micromax launched Micromax Dual 5 this year for Rs 24,999 which was its first dual rear camera having two 13-megapixel sensors. If the Micromax Evok Dual Note really comes with dual camera setup, then the smartphone will face stiff competition from the recently-launched Lenovo K8 Note, last year's Honor 6X and this year's Coolpad Cool 1 Dual which are already in the market offering dual cameras under Rs 15,000.
Coming to the Evok Note smartphone, it boasts a metal design and comes loaded with 5.5-inch Full HD display. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6753 processor along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 64GB via microSD card slot.
On the camera front, the device features a 13-megapixel rear camera with PDAF, 5P Largan lens, while for the front, there is a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies and video calling. The smartphone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and is juiced up by a 3950mAh battery. On the connectivity front, the device support, 4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, dual-SIM (hybrid) and microUSB port. The Evok Note also features fingerprint sensor at the front, which also acts as a home button.
